Cozma joined Hungarian team Veszprem in 2006 from Dinamo Bucharest.

Cozma and other Veszprem players were celebrating in a nightclub when they had a dispute with another group.

The Romanian international was stabbed in the heart outside the club and died later on the road to hospital. Other two coleagues were injured, Croatian goalkeeper Ivan Pesic and Zarko Sesum from Serbia but they are out of danger.

Cozma was one of the leaders and also one of the hopes of the Romanian handball team. Cozma was even proposed to Barcelona, one of the biggest handball clubs in the world.

The Veszprem officials declared about Cozma that he was calm and that he would not hurt anyone. The Romanian international was stabbed also some years ago by some gypsies.

Next stage games from Hungary will begin with a moment of silence for the Romanian. Veszprem will play in Champions League against Ademar Leon from Spain next Sunday but the Hungarian officials will try to postpone the match because the team could still be in shock.
